"Best" Bet (plus two)

November 14, 2012 by Steel Haven

A second straight best bet win, three in the last four weeks. What sparked the mini-turnaround if going 6-6 overall in that time frame can be termed as such? At least with best bets in the last two weeks it was coming to the conclusion the Jaguars are awful. This does not make me a rocket scientist. By the way, I thought it was i before e except after c. What's up with science/scientist? The English language is a bitch. There wasn't much to celebrate after Thursday night as last year's Super Bowl participants let me down in my other bets. I was especially foolish to jump on the Giants bandwagon too early during their annual November swoon.

I obviously don't need to tell anyone how pathetic 30% on best bets and 33% on all bets is after ten weeks. Or how ridiculous it is to say going 3-1 in best bets and 6-6 overall during the last four weeks is some sort of recovery. This week I am all over a trio of road favorites. Hilarity is sure to ensue.

home team in bold

Best Bet

Cincinnati Bengals (-3.5) over Kansas City Chiefs

Arrowhead no longer provides much of a home field advantage.


New Orleans Saints (-5.5) over Oakland Raiders

Saints are still breathing after winning four of their last five. Raiders no longer have a pulse after giving up 97 points in their last two contests.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-1.5) over Carolina Panthers

Hate to admit it, but I sort of like Greg Schiano.

Last Week

Indianapolis Colts (-3.5) over Jacksonville Jaguars WIN

New England Patriots (-12.0) over Buffalo Bills LOSS

New York Giants (-4.5) over Cincinnati Bengals LOSS

Year to Date: 10-20  Best Bets: 3-7
